Draft Complete

Yayh! (<-- Spelling may be dubious but it sounds about right).

I just finished the first draft of a fantasy story I've been chipping away at on and off since October. It chimes in at 9250 words, and has plot holes so big that I'll need Explanations (tm) and Consistency Checks (tm) by the truckload to make it work. But writing that particular word (END) just felt So Good.

Now revision of a very old SF story awaits. That one has been three and a half years in the making, but I've never been able to get it out of my mind, so it definitely should have a second chance.

It's always a victory when we finish one of the ones that's been languishing ;o)

Yep! The feeling of accomplishing something is inimitable.

Thanks! The trademarks aren't mine, sadly. But I guess somebody out there must be haulin' in some serious dough...

To be honest, many of my stories take me a long time to write (I often alternate between projects) - but that doesn't take out the pleasure of the word End.

Pruning? The old story, perhaps. The one just drafted is more of a hack'n'slash job. Cue the ninja gardener on amfetamine...
